Fate Of A Nation
Ch'ir Weapons Platoon (AIS723) The Belgian FN MAG light machine-gun (known as the L7 GPMG in British service and the M240 in US service) is a reliable source of firepower, while the venerable American M2 60mm mortar is ideal for knocking out machine-gun nests.

Ch'ir Weapons Platoon (AIS723)
Assembling The Weapon Squads
The Ch'ir Weapons Platoon contains a Command SMG team (which we've already covered), one Mortar Squad containing two M2 60mm mortar teams, and one MG Squad containing two FN MAG LMG teams.
Assembling The Mortar Squads
One of the mortar teams in the mortar squad needs to contain the two-man mortar crew consisting of the kneeling gunner and loader figures as well as the M2 60mm mortar itself along with one of the NCO figures (we suggest the kneeling NCO as seen above). The other mortar team are made up of the same two-man mortar crew, the M2 60mm mortar and one Riflemen figure. Model the mortar teams on the Medium four-hole bases provided in the blister pack.

Tip: Use the base plugs to fill the leftover figure hole on the base as each mortar team consists of only a three figures.
